CERTIPASS has entered into a partnership with AFRALTI, the African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute, which has chosen the EIPASS programs for the certification of the computer user’s digital skills.
AFRALTI is an Inter-Governmental Institute established in 1991 to supplement and spearhead ICT development efforts mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This collaboration aims to spread the skills necessary for the conscious use of digital devices, the Internet and productivity applications.
The CERTIPASS Sole Director, Dr. Mario Palmiero, commented on the start of activities with AFRALTI as follow:
“As an international certification body, we have always felt the responsibility to educate and raise awareness among citizens on the issues of digital skills, not only because we firmly believe that the production system cannot ignore having digitally competent human resources, but also and above all because a citizen aware of their digital rights and duties, is a happier citizen and able to dispose of his future.
This partnership allows us to operate with a prestigious and solid body, which operates at an Intergovernmental level in Lesotho, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Kingdom of Eswatini, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
I firmly believe that together we will reach important goals and great satisfactions”.
During the signing of the MoU the AFRALTI Director, Mr. William Baraza said, “With our focus being developing human resource capacity in the area of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) so as to catalyze the socio-economic development of the region, partnering with CERTIPASS will see AFRALTI accomplish its core mandate by promoting digital literacy where students will acquire digital competences virtually leading to the relative certification. AFRALTI will liverage its African footprint to ensure that the courses on offer are taken up beyond the Sub-Saharan Africa.”
The University Roma Tre has chosen CERTIPASS to allow all its students to independently enhance their digital skills.
The University’s goal is to promote contents that reinforce key skills, as part of the professional training project and strengthening the immediate employability of students. All this through the EIPASS 7 modules user, that aims to the acquisition and certification of skills necessary to use the basic tools available on Personal Computer and on the Internet in an ethical and productive manner.
CERTIPASS is a member of All Digital, the updating committee of DigComp Framework.
The goal of All Digital, which we share and support, is to assist European citizens who have an insufficient level of digital skills.
This means that they are less likely to find work, to use online services, to have a better quality of life, to be included in today’s society.
On the basis of DigComp, the European Framework for the competence of Digital Citizen, we create all our EIPASS certification paths.
CERTIPASS adheres to the “Repubblica Digitale”.
“Repubblica Digitale” is the national strategic initiative promoted by the Department for digital transformation of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers with the aim of tackling the cultural digital gap of the Italian population.
In order to support the utmost digital inclusion and support the education of the technologies of the future, accompanying the country’s digital transformation process.
In this way CERTIPASS concretely supports the #Italiadigitale2026 plan included in the PNRR:
Bridging the digital skill gaps, with at least 70% of the population being digitally capable.
